Paper Abstract

A iSCSI-based CD mirroring server (iCDMS) has been developed and tested. Firstly, the iCDMS can automate to concurrently mirror multi- CD with multi- CD drivers, and the CD includes VCD, DVD, and so on. Secondly, the iCDMS can provide both of the file I/O and the block I/O services by an iSCSI module, which converges the NAS and SAN advantages, as high performance and data sharing across platforms. Thirdly, the iCDMS greatly improves the I/O speed by Zero Copy mechanism. Fourthly, the iCDMS implements automatically - allocating I/O bandwidth for different users and applications by enriching the metadata operating semantic of the CD server, and allocate a wider bandwidth for applications that has higher priority, changing the old average allocating bandwidth pattern. Finally, the iCDMS improves paralleled file I/O performance with a parallel FTP server module. In the experiments, the iCDMS has ultra-high-throughput for both of the file I/O requests and the block I/O requests
